Program Details

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern invites applications for the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Automation and Control (AUT). 

The programme deals with the automatic control of complex industrial systems such as production automation, power grids, robotics, e-mobility, or mechatronic systems in a possibly networked environment. Real-time processing using embedded platforms forms the fundamental design basis, also for safety and security considerations. During the Master’s studies at TUK, the candidates will gain deep knowledge in the areas of control theory, modelling and identification, development of safe and secure systems, robotics and mechatronic systems, and embedded and communication systems.

A key difference to many competitive programmes at other universities is the large degree of freedom you will have regarding the selection of elective courses and projects. Besides taking regular modules, you can also carry out specific projects, for instance, in cooperation with local industry. In total, there is a high flexibility for you to create your own very personal profile during your studies for your future in industry or academia.

The curriculum consists of a core programme, an elective programme, and a Master’s thesis. The compulsory subjects are:

  • Logic Control
  • Nonlinear and Adaptive Controlling
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Robust Control
  • Mechatronic Systems
  • Lab Automation and Control
  • Methods of Soft-Control
  • Modelling and Identification

The last part of the curriculum is the Master’s thesis. In general, the Master’s thesis is embedded into larger research projects conducted at TUK, at local research institutes, or in industry. The topic of your Master’s thesis will be determined during your second or third semester of studies.

Eligibility/ Requirements

Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or an equivalent foreign degree in a related field

  • TOEFL or IELTS (GRE is recommended)

Good knowledge of English is required for admission to this programme of study.
